A sliding vane compressor is a positive displacement compressor, meaning it decreases a specific volume of a gas, resulting in increased gas pressure.
Compressor testing can be utilized to validate expected performance, analyze product developments, determine baseline data in a controlled environment, troubleshoot unexpected or undesirable operation and much more.
Sour gas is any gas containing significant amounts, typically above 20ppm, of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). H2S is a colorless gas that is heavier than air and harmful to humans at concentrations of 20 ppm in air.
Direct injection compressor lubrication is used in sliding vane gas compressors and has distinct benefits over other types of lubrication used by other compressors.
